A community where everybody belongs

Planned Giving

Planned giving can mean leaving a legacy for the future of WDDS and people living with a developmental disability. You have the opportunity to do something extraordinary for your community, when you include a gift to WDDS in your estate planning.

There are a number of ways that this can be done. By choosing one of the options below, you have the ability to turn some of your resources into gifts that will support the objectives of our agency and receive a direct financial benefit in return. For every planned gift made, there is a significant tax benefit for you, the donor.

  • Bequest in a Will
    Your Will may be used to leave a lump sum or a percentage of your estate to WDDS.
  • Gift of Property
    Both residential and commercial property can be directly donated to WDDS.
  • Bequest of Securities
    Purchasing securities/life insurance today and gifting them to WDDS in the future.

These bequests help make dreams come true and make our agency more secure for the future. The extra dollars we receive go towards funding special projects like purchasing specialized equipment, wheelchair vans and even building barrier free homes. A planned gift to WDDS will have a major impact on the future lives of the people supported by this agency.
“Planned Giving” is a personal decision and must be made with care and consideration. We encourage you to use the professional assistance of your lawyer in preparing your will and discuss the arrangements in advance with your financial planner.
